New South Wales Australia sees ‘dramatic drop’ in COVID cases, with 667 new cases and 10 deaths


New South Wales has recorded a “dramatic drop” in COVID-19 cases, with 667 infections and 10 deaths as the state announced an easing of self-quarantine rules for the fully vaccinated.

The cases recorded in the latest reporting period were the lowest since August 19 and were cautiously celebrated by Health Minister Brad Hazzard.

“It’s quite a dramatic drop,” he said.

“All the hard work that we have done … to have gone from 1,599 cases just three weeks ago to 667 cases today has taken a lot of hard work.
